Paging Eugene Ionesco

Here’s a snippet of the absurdist drama that is life with kids:

6:00 a.m.

Eli: So what else is there?

Julie [mostly asleep]: What?

Eli: What else?

Julie: What else of what?

Eli: There’s excavators, and dumptrucks, and loaders. What else?

Julie [face still smashed into pillow, burrowing deeper into covers]: Cement mixers.

Eli: What else?

Julie: Forklifts.

Eli: Where?

Julie: What?

Eli: Where is the forklift?

Julie: What are we talking about?

Eli: Show it to me.

Julie: What?

Eli: Get up. Read me a book.

Julie [sighing]: Oh, alright.

    This was absolutely hilarious.
    Maybe now you need to share the bit about Macy. Can you do that w/o offending anyone? Possibly it would lose its humor amid necessary explanations…

    I keep thinking the bit about Macy involves too much backstory to make it as instantly entertaining as it could be.
